#MINE Event - Diversity in organizations: what we know from research and what executives can do

Oct 2018 18:00 - 19:30

Lecture Hall Libreria Egea Viale Bligny, 22 Milano


Diversity has been an ever-present topic in many organizations for the last several decades. Notwithstanding the importance of diversity in today’s workplace, researchers identified
several problems that commonly arise from increasing organizational diversity (e.g., gender and sexual orientation), such as prejudice, discrimination and conflict. The bulk of the seminar
will then explore solutions to these problemsfocusing on those that have been rigorously tested and shown to be effective by researchers:

# What is diversity and why is it important?
# What are the problems associated with diversity?
# What can women and minorities do to overcome problems associated with diversity?
# What are managerial and organizational solutions to problems associated with diversity?
